The tasty Malabar spinach -- which is also known poi saag or in Kannada as basale or in Bengali as pui saag or in Marathi as mayalu and is usually available in vegetable bazaars all year round -- when combined with prawns is a match made in heaven.

The hearty Malabar Spinach and Prawn Curry tastes great with steamed rice or roti.
